image

Feathers have been used in clothing design for decades: from the Victorian rush on hats that inspired the Audubon Society’s formation, to the beautiful and intricate ceremonial work of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas.

Pattern Inspiration: Pretty Leaves Cowl

Pattern Inspiration: Plumage

image

Kim Drigg’s pattern inspiration comes from the ‘V’ shaped feathers of her cockatiel, Merle. Plumage takes flight immediately, carrying us along for the ride with each stitch, while new sock base Knitologie Incline Sock (75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon) shines in this month’s Chill Out colorway, Pygmy Tyrant.
